Together, you can help us launch an important new home for our community.

Every Monday in May, New Native Theatre has been reading Vine Deloria’s groundbreaking book, CUSTER DIED FOR YOUR SINS, in the beautiful outdoor amphitheater at the Minneapolis American Indian Center. We are turning this culminating reading into a simple fundraiser on Monday, May 31st, 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.

New Native Theatre’s goal is to raise $2,500 to meet a challenge grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council (MRAC) by mid June. If we succeed in doing this, MRAC will give New Native Theatre a $4,000 grant!

We hope you will join us in person or in spirit! If you can’t attend, you can still make a donation online at http://givemn.razoo.com/story/New-Native-Theatre!
